Star Trek: Strange New Worlds is an upcoming Star Trek series that was announced on 15 May 2020. It will be produced by CBS Studios and will star Anson Mount as Christopher Pike, Ethan Peck as Spock, and Rebecca Romijn as Una.

Premise

The official announcement stated that "the series will follow Captain Pike, Science Officer Spock, and Number One in the decade before Captain Kirk boarded the USS Enterprise, as they explore new worlds around the galaxy." [1]

Executive producer and co-creator Akiva Goldsman told Variety, "We’re going to try to harken back to some classical ‘Trek’ values, to be optimistic, and to be more episodic. Obviously, we will take advantage of the serialized nature of character and story building. But I think our plots will be more closed-ended than you’ve seen in either Discovery or Picard. … I imagine it to be closer to the original series than even DS9. We can really tell closed-ended stories. We can find ourselves in episodes that are tonally of a piece." [2]

Main cast

Development

In August 2020, producer Alex Kurtzman said that the writers’ room for Strange New Worlds was meeting virtually during the Covid-19 pandemic, and that he expected the show to begin filming in 2021. [3]

Promotion

Products

In October 2020, Eaglemoss/Hero Collector announced plans to manufacture starship miniatures from SNW in a future starships line, combined with ships from Star Trek: Picard and Star Trek: Discovery, and estimated that the partwork would launch around April 2021. [4]
